As the county seat, Decatur is the heart and soul of Wise County. Decatur’s downtown core is the heart of the city, and at its center is the historic Wise County Courthouse, built in 1896 and constructed of pink granite pre-cut and shipped over 200 miles via train.
A number of unique restaurants and local businesses have made downtown Decatur their home, thriving on the mixed patronage of residents and visitors. Spend the afternoon–or a day and the night–exploring unique dining options, browsing boutiques and specialty shops, or stopping in for pampering at a salon or wellness establishment.
Downtown Decatur is brimming with history, and iconic restaurants and eateries attract residents and visitors alike. Dining ranges from Mexican, steaks, and seafood to sweet treats.
Drop in one of our local restaurants for a tasty meal, take a photo with one of our murals, and finish off with a sweet treat. And if you’re here for the night, whether for business or pleasure, book a room at the Courthouse Suites, our local bed and breakfast located in the Historic Town Square.
